" I've been tutoring high school students for the past three years. My goal in tutoring is for my students to learn what questions they need to ask themselves when the going gets tough. If I'm teaching a language, for example, I help my students not only with translating particular sentences, but with forming a method of translation for themselves. That way, they have the tools to solve further difficulties even when I'm not there."

"There I develop curriculum and provide professional development to educators. I very much enjoy my tutoring positions and have found them to be rewarding, both for me and for my students.

" In Cincinnati, I worked with Latin students at all levels. My beginning Latin students saw particularly outstanding results, because I was able to teach them the English grammar and mechanics they needed to transition from English to Latin. From my professional experience as a Shakespearean actor and my educational experience as a Shakespearean director, I know that I can explain and enliven classic texts for people of all ages. I have a strong literature background, and I am passionate about tutoring students who struggle to understand or appreciate English literary treasures." ...

" For the past 3 years, I've worked in the educational publishing industry -- in other words, I write text books. This has given me great experience seeing what goes into testing students; I know what they should know at various grade levels, I'm familiar with LOTS of pedagogical techniques (and have seen what works and what doesn't), and I've had a lot of experience "leveling" text and lessongs. That means that I know how to adapt a student's in-school curriculum to match their particular ability level and learning styles. I truly believe that the best way to help students learn is to do what works best for them -- if a student is struggling with ...
